As well as Narrow Road, also try Flanagan's Gould's Book of Fish, a pretty extraordinary novel in the magical realist vein in my view, and I'll be sure to look up Sorokin. Thank you for that recommendation!
I must admit that I am not familiar with Richard Flanagan. I will have to check him out. Especially since I recently finished a book of poetry by Les Murray - Australia's (more or less) premier poet. My reading lately has had a somewhat international lean - been enjoying a few novels by Vladimir Sorokin (can't recommend his Ice Trilogy enough.)Thanks for the Flanagan recommendation!!! I love encountering "new-to-me" authors.edit - damn, just found the next book to read - Narrow...
Damn it, Dire, you erudite s.o.b., you always were one step ahead of the herd (or should that be behind?). I've been getting by on Duke Ellington and Cosi Fan Tutte. Are you familiar with Richard Flanagan, the Australian novelist? Been very impressed indeed by his work lately.
Been on a bit of a jazz and classical kick myself of late. Man, it is good to see you here. Are we getting Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Old Farts Band back together? Got your email, winged something appropriately incoherent back.
You know, Mr. Hollow, slightly-rotten-wedged-cow is a gastronomic delicacy - I think I have even seen it on Chopped! (or maybe that was just a moo-rbid flashback i am remembering)Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all you foetid miscreants :)Yes, even you bluedevil ;)
According to the wife, my chimney is clogged with my head most of the time, so good luck with that.I just hope Dire managed to get that cow un-wedged from his chimney this year. Neighbors were complaining about the smell.

"but spam, which frankly, is what Moo Beam's posts amt to (it's a pitch for a product, which BTW, is MUCH more irritating than one of Rich's tirades about a poster's possible troll status)."Excuse me my esteemed PM, but how many times were you on the "receiving end" of Rich's tirades, or his unsolicited mocking you? Zero times, likely? A good PM knows how to fit the shoe well on the other foot, and then wear it for awhile...What you guys are doing about the bullshit Rich has...
Hmm, methinks you need a little help w your statistics...allow me.;)Seriously; I think you make a valid pt that Rich can be abusive, but it's NOT many--in fact, it's because it's a consistent few that it stands out so clearly. He's been called to task on it by them, and by others, including me, but in the end, the one big difference is Rich does post a DEAD related post now and again, and though generally it's about some lame ass 80s show that he attended, w his overwhelming, Skobud like...
Hi ive found the web page i was looking for but when i click on the name its saying not archived,all the other names i click on come up,except the one i want.Any info how to get the info would be grateful..
i had the exact same experience at that show. a group of friends and i were just starting to get off as we reached the "people bridge" that would take us across the highway (this tunnel-like overpass was always pretty weird post-show btw, as it funneled thousands of sweaty tripping fucked up freaks and their chaotic euphoric energy from magical grateful dead fantasy land into a long and brightly lit tube, forcing them to join a slow-moving and tightly packed procession of saucer eyes...

Mr. TELL how much info do you really think one can draw conclusions from and how accurate is this info from lets say 1,262,501 years ago or even 2000 years ago! ya sure we can calculate based on the last thirty but geez thousands or millions IMO and MOO is well a wee bit far fetched....aint often right but ive never been wrong ......
Dire - Check your mail. I sent you an anniversary present containing a pair of Wellington Boots, velcro gloves and a map to the nearest sheep farm.Put the back legs of the sheep in each of the boots, grab a hold with the velcro gloves and enjoy the ride."Once you do ewe, you'll never do Moo."
Do you have me confused with Dire?Well, she was a-walkin' down the street, lookin' fine as she could be.Hey, hey!Well, you have love and conversation,Whoa, yeah, what I say!Hey, hey!She's about a moo-ver.She's about a moo-ver.
BIG anniversary of July 19th 1990 coming. Is it possible for a miracle Aud upload and a CM transfer in 2 days?It's not like I'm asking for the Moo... Wait a dog gone minute!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zGNryrsT7OI&feature=relatedThis post was modified by Solo Head on 2009-07-18 03:47:17
anyone keeping up with these oncoming shows? (Not just the one they attended). Any show stand out as being especially well played? yeah, i'm a lazy moo-foo and DON'T want to review or DL every one so farhttp://www.archive.org/search.php?query=collection%3ATheDead%20AND%20year%3A%222009%22&sort=-datefrom what I've read, 4/24 is the best so farThis post was modified by rastamon on 2009-04-26 14:58:16This post was modified by rastamon on 2009-04-26 15:05:34
OMG--that was funny; had no idea what you had come up with, and after reading just your opening line...this certainly beats my "timid drivers" news item!Nonetheless, with respect to bovine satisfying World Records, I wouldn't sell our Dire SHORT. Bessie and all her aunts and cousins and maybe even a few uncles (eewww) all moo highly on his behalf.

Well those canine teeth we developed sure ain't for cracking walnuts and chewing alfafa sprouts. And the opposable thumbs and tool usage, communication, standing upright, all for the sake of slaightering some nice furry creature and eating it. I try to avoid so much red meat but when I see a steak I get all gushy. Do you know what "moo" means in Jersey cow language? "eat me".Yum.
And Dire thought he had found perfection in this beauty:<table style="width:auto;"><tr><td><a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/I24i-4r13yw6H67_Wy1v7Q?authkey=UJd5GM0mkg4" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://lh4.ggpht.com/_J4B1-Psww2E/SUAmZ9XEY4I/AAAAAAAAC7s/VhLrfS9whvU/s400/med_robot_cow.jpg" alt="med_robot_cow.jpg"...
when I go, I'll bring down the entire Internet with the help of the Infamous Chinese kingpin, Fuk Chew YuAnd dire's ex bovine-in-law will lay down a stench that will trip up the global temp worse than Al Gores Jet.The carbon moo-print
One Christmas was so much like another, in those years around the sea-town corner now and out of all sound except the distant speaking of the voices I sometimes hear a moment before sleep, that I can never remember whether it snowed for six days and six nights when I was twelve or whether it snowed for twelve days and twelve nights when I was six. All the Christmases roll down toward the two-tongued sea, like a cold and headlong moon bundling down the sky that was our...
Alex Trebek: Let's just go to "Animal Sounds" for $600. This is the sound a doggy makes. [ Connery buzzes in ] Mr. Connery. Sean Connery: Moo. Alex Trebek: No. Sean Connery: Well, that's the sound your mother made last night (sorry, couldn't help it, someone brought up the Darrel Hammond Sean Connery impressions on SNL's Celebrity Jeopardy and it still kills me)
'Question Mark' Killer Quietly Seethed With Rage Tuesday , April 17, 2007 Cho Seung-Hui, the gunman who apparently killed 32 people and himself Monday morning at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in Blacksburg, Va., seems to have been a shy, quiet type seething with rage at unspecified tormentors. Virginia Tech police on Tuesday morning identified Cho, 23, as the man whose body had been found in Norris Hall, site of the worst shooting...
Whooo! What a great find. I just found out about Molly Moo-Cow from the Academy of TV Arts & Sciences interview with Joe Barbera. It, & interviews with many TV pioneers, are at Google Video (http://video.google.com/). Love & Peace, Clarence
Local grocery store is selling these PD cartoon DVD's for $1.50 each so I picked up a Felix the Cat one on a whim and was literally knocked on my butt by the selection offered. First two are the PD standards "Bold King Cole" and "Goose that Laid the Golden Eggs but after that the viewer is treated to some primo Van Beuren fare which includes 3 Molly Moo-Cows, a Little King, two or 3 Toonerville Trolleys, "Cupid Gets her Man" (a short I thought only existed in a...
